Living Choice supports popular annual regatta

One of the Central Coast’s most iconic events, the Davistown Putt Putt Regatta and Wooden Boat Festival, was held on 22nd October and, once again, the Living Choice stall attracted a big crowd.

Last year, the Resident Ambassadors from Alloura Waters ‘manned’ the Living Choice stand, however this year the Ambassador team from Broadwater Court teamed up with village manager, Jodie Shelley and other staff members to fly the flag for Living Choice.

Jodie said the beautiful weather contributed to a fantastic day, enjoyed by many Living Choice residents and hundreds of others who flocked to the annual event which is organised by the Lions Club of Green Point/Avoca in conjunction with the Davistown Progress Association.

“We gave away balloons, bags, flyers, bottles of water and caps and also organised face-painting, which was a huge hit with the children. It was a fabulous event and we will definitely do it all again next year,” she said.

The festival is held along the picturesque Illoura Reserve in Davistown and fills the wide grass reserve between the waterfront houses and the Brisbane Water. The regatta has an interesting history and was born from challenges held in the 1900’s between boat owners and builders competing for the crown of the fastest boat. The Putt Putt Regatta now attracts boats from all over Australia and the entrants get into the spirit of the occasion, donning vintage and novelty costumes.
